The article discusses the advantages of the dehumidification enhancement of liquid subcooling/air reheating (LSCARH) system. It states that the system is best applied for residential air conditioning in moist climate zone areas because it can change an acceptable humidity level to relative humidity condition. It points out the simplicity on the process of dehumidification enhancement of the LSCARH system, however, it also involves many variations.
